The designing process of Grounds Coffee Hub relates to a collector's task: the form, materialization, and construction processes were informed by a curated maximization of waste materials re-use.

As much as 80 percent of the interior fit-out was built using materials salvaged from a previous project, which would otherwise have been scrapped. In terms of function, the vision was to expand the notion of a roastery to the public, while becoming a platform for baristas and coffee experts to educate themselves and be part of a community. This started with the early involvement of the team in the construction process.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
